The main floor of the restaurant was full so we were offered the cellar where we had a great experience. There are lovely pictures and a unique atmosphere which we really enjoyed.

We visited twice during our week in Port Alfred. A good atmosphere and interesting and varied menu at very reasonable prices. Service is good and food appears fairly quickly. Bram the chef is always visible around the restaurant and Leroy has front of house well under control. Highly recommend this restaurant in one of the oldest buildings in PA

We all took the house specials on a Sunday (2 courses for a fixed price). The first course (mushrooms) was poor and tasteless. The main course was excellent. The sweets, although very good, were miniscule in size. The service, although friendly, was very slow even though the restaurant was only half full

This is a must visit restaurant when in the eastern cape, from the time of arrival everything was perfect. The service was very attentive and sharp and the food came out very quickly, very tasty and well cooked meals, great portion sizes. We would go back for sure!

Always wanted to eat here and was not disappointed. The beers were nice and cold - everyone found one of the beers to their liking - my fav is the Coin Ale. Service was good not excellent. My pepper rump was delicious - other had the ribs, calamari & fish and chips. Everyone enjoyed their food. Definitely recommended .

A vibey, friendly place where the food never disappoints. The beer is good too! Seafood is excellent but so are burgers or whatever you wish to order.

The "Wharf Street Brew Pub" is situated on the historic Wharf Street in Port Alfred. It is housed in the oldest commercial building in Port Alfred completed in 1853. The decor is simple with pictures of old Port Alfred being the focal pointWe have micro Brewery attached to us and sell three of our own beers. Our food is a selection of Pub Style food like fish and chips, schnitzels and burgers ranging to freshly caught line fish, in house matured steaks and a host of other things in between. We pride our selves on good food and service so please pop in if only to sample our local brew, you might well end up staying for a bite to eat as many do after seeing our menu.
